Denis Villeneuve’s Polytechnique (Free w/ RSVP)

Presented in association with National Canadian Film Day 150 and the USC School of Cinematic Arts

On the eve of National Canadian Film Day 150, join us for a screening of Oscar-nominated director Denis Villeneuve’s 2009 film, Polytechnique!

“The black-and-white Polytechnique is inspired by a real atrocity close to home: the December 6, 1989, massacre at a prestigious engineering college in Montreal. As Gus Van Sant did in Elephant, Villeneuve, co-writing with Jacques Davidts and Éric Leca, offers no explanation for the shooting rampage” (Melissa Anderson), instead constructing a precise, honest, historical record.

Dir. Denis Villeneuve, 2009, 77 min.
